Abstract
The Army requires a credit card-sized device that allows forward HUMINT collectors to communicate formatted messages with Brigade level personnel located up to 15 km away. During Phase I, Li Creative Technologies has analyzed the requirements and found the most efficient way to develop the device. Several COST PCB modules have been identified to construct the device with minimal risk. During Phase II, we will design a PCB to combine all the modules together as a device with proper display and enclosure for use by forward HUMINT assets. Also, we will continue our microphone array and noise reduction algorithm research and further improve the performances in terms of signal-to-noise ratio, speech intelligibility, robustness, and reduced computation complexity. Our state-of-the-art speech recognition software will be ported and evaluated on the developed hardware. The developed device will fully meet the requirements of forward HUMINT and it will be the first credit card-sized automatic speech recognizer on the market with such a small form factor and robust recognition performance.
